There's a wonderful interconnectedness happening these days. My friend Hazel Clark posted a tweet about her visit to Ottawa and in it she quoted author John Ralston Saul. "Saul says he can trace the literacy skills in an area to the elements of a library program in place in the school."
Her Tweet was picked up and posted in a newsletter which led me to two great sites for school librarians:
The value in being part of online communities like Twitter, of opening your personal learning network (PLN) to include online groups in your area of speciality lies in the richness of resources that will come your way.
Twitter is catching on in a big way. Do you use Twitter? Have you started an RSS feed for the great blog posts by other librarians?
Have you formed an online community of practice with other librarians in your district? In today's interconnected world there is no reason for librarians to feel isolated geographically. There is no limit to the professional learning opportunities offered online for free.
Learning is social. Join in the conversation.
